Your new ClubFest
We’re really pleased that we have been able to bring you our new ClubFest event at the
stunning grounds of Belvoir Castle. For many years our annual Club get-together has been
known as The National and this has served us well. The Club recognises that times have
moved on with many of our members going to different festivals across the county. We
now feel that the time is right to move in this direction too. This offers the opportunity to
provide a less formal approach across the event, with an outdoor stage and seating areas
with some great free entertainment during the day and evening and lots of other free
activities that will all be part our new All-inclusive pricing package for the full four days.
Many of your favourite activities will still be there for you at ClubFest.
Of course, the core of the event is our sense of community and meeting old and new friends
alike, so we’ve kept the pitching areas in line with previous events and under Divisional and
Regional areas. We also have areas where you can mix with other members outside of
Divisions and Regions.
Our event this year will be themed around the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, and there will be
various activities throughout the event, so we hope you can join us to help celebrate this
And new for 2022 we’ve also given you an opportunity to stay with us on a campsite for five
days before the main event. Whilst the main village will still be being built, you’ll have the
chance to fully explore the local area. For more information on the pre-event campsite,
please see the FAQs section.
Frequently asked questions
Why have you changed the name?
The National is evolving into a four-day festival-style event. There is new, all-inclusive
pricing, while in addition to all the fun and great facilities you’d expect we’ve refreshed the
activities and entertainment on offer – including the introduction of an outdoor stage – to
appeal to a wide variety of visitors.
As this is a significant change in format, the Club felt that the time was right for a new
name. ClubFest reflects the new festival feel and the fact that this is still our flagship event.
What can I expect at ClubFest?
We’ll have a huge range of entertainment and activities for you, your family and friends to
enjoy. However you choose to spend your four days we’ll try and give you the best possible
